Probably some sort of sugar?  I don’t know for sure.

You can’t really buy sugar crystals that big. It looks like someone may have crushed up some rock candy!

It looks like sugar crystals to me.  I was just watching a cake challene on Food Network last night where they put “crystals” all over a tiara and it looked just like the stuff thats on the cake.

i was thinking sugar crystals as well, sort of like the kind that goes around the rim of your alcoholic drink.  they have them at the grocery stores near the candles…

It’s definitely sugar crystals. My mom does wedding cakes and she’s definitely used stuff this coarse before… I’ll ask where she bought it!
